Lenovo Y410p / Y510p - unlocked BIOS / wlan whitelist mod / vbios mod

Recommended Posts

Hi. Thanks for the help.

I want to ask a question. I use a y510p and i want to be able to set fan speeds to %100 manually and leave them at %100 speed as long as i need. I'm not interested any other benefit of this bios mod. Is this possible with this bios mod ? If not and you answer my question, you may save me from a lot of effort to the mod then return to the original bios.

Thanks anyway.

Quick question, so I was followed the directions, I opened the .bat file from the command prompt as an administrator and it created a file called bios.bin. That's the only file it created so I assume that's the backup but when i drag it onto the biosfixer or try to open it with the biosfixer it doesn't create any new file called v305mod.bin. am I the only one this is happening to? Any help would be appreciated.

I actually was just having the exact same problem a couple minutes ago. Open biosfixer and drag the bios into the window of the program. ;)

No, this is not (yet?) possible. This BIOS/EC mod does not allow you to control fan speeds. Look at @allstone and his IdeaFan script, for now, that's the closest you'll get to controlling fan speeds.

I would be interested how I can

voltage change from onboard video card

reduced from 1,1v to 1,05v

If it is possible by modifying the parameters in BIOS

I know that the motherboard onboard video BIOS gt755m is included in version 3.05.

There is something that you can edit?

The performance certainly 1.05v remain unchanged but the temperature will be lower by at least 5-8 degrees

You can undervolt both cards in NVIDIA Inspector after flashing the custom VBIOSs.

Tried and saw it myself : ) And the mod works like a charm. No problems at all applying it. Very good instructions. Thanks again.

Psst. Read the forum rules! There is something written about 5 quality posts ;)

Not unless someone risks a DMCA takedown request...

The file stays here and people come here to get it, get support and provide feedback.

You can just run the code (inside that .bat file) using CMD with administrator privileges

I guess that's subjective then.. I have 5 quality posts, multi-sentence, actually said something of value. I guess I'll just keep posting and eventually someone will decide that 5 of them are "quality"

I wasn't suggesting violate DMCA.. If the author hosts it somewhere else, there is no violation. Thanks for the response though

It seems that has already happened, I don't see any of your posts in queue for approval and you got already 7 posts. Just wait until the server reloads permissions. If you still can't download anything in 1-2h please contact an administrator.

The way I know svl7 that is not going to happen, had some bad experience with that. People came here to download didn't even read the support thread, posted their issues on NBR or similar and then complained there that the files weren't working as advertised. That left a bad reputation for the modder and the forums bandwidth was used up by leechers rather than members. But I'm glad to hear that you are one of the reasonable guy out there.

Going from 1.07 to 2.07 solved my battery drain problem ... wondering if going to 3.05 will solve the battery charging issue where you have to unplug the battery and plug it back in to get it to charge again? Quite annoying and happens on both of my batteries.

Has anyone with a 7260AC upgraded to the modded v3.05 and been able to successfully get their wifi card to go to sleep without disabling Bluetooth?

I am on this step:

(2) - Download the files for the v3.05 mod, put the files of folder [1] to the root of your prepared USB DOS stick.

Let the BiosFixer prepare your BIOS for flashing by drag and dropping your backup file on it. Put the created "v305mod.bin" file to the root of your USB DOS drive as well.

Nothing happens when I drag and drop my backup file on the biosfixer so I can't get the "v305mod.bin" file. Any suggestions?

Did you open the Biosfixer program first and then drag the bios backup bin file onto it?

---

Tried the bios. Everything is working fine. Was able to safely undervolt to -125mv (using nvidia inspector) which lead to a nice 5-10C drop in GPU temps. Thanks!

No, I dragged the bios back up file on the biosfixer without opening it. Biosfixer simply opens with this message :

Lenovo Y410p / Y510p For BIOS version v3.05

This mod will replace the VBIOS of your GPU.

Read the instructions carefully.

Use at your own risk.

Nothing happens after..

I think you're supposed to drag the bios file onto the program after you open the program. And you didnt notice any new files in the same folder as your backup bios?

Nevermind, solved the problem. For some reason it did not work when the files were on desktop, but when I put both file in a folder worked as intended. Posting post flash btw, successfully installed intel 7260 AC adapter on Lenovo y510p. Thanks a lot for this thread!

      Hello to all big format laptop users!
      I`ll try to make it as short as possible. I have the Alienware M18X R1 for about 7years, i think. It was a problematic machine all the time. But during warranty period local support fixed everything super fast and free of charge :). I even upgraded from gtx 580m sli to gtc 780m sli. And made primary hdd samsung evo ssd. Unlocked Bios. Power brick i changed 3 times by now. Battery once. And 6moths ago one of the long time ago installed 780m died ( started with artifacts on screen then refused to boot windows). Replaced that and was as happy as ever. The machine kept working stable and i pushed all i could get from it in reasonably modern titles. Even tried RDR2 on default settings, gave me 17fps :). Not sure if SLI is supported for that game. The point is it was running fine for last 6 months.
      What happened:  Gaming as usual, room temp 23C. After around 2hr suddenly black screen. The laptop switched off by itself.
      What i check: First checked power brick. Green light off. Unplug from wall and laptop. After plugging in wall green light back on. Connect laptop light off.
      Next: Tried take out battery, unplug. And hold the PWR button for 1 min. Try to start on battery - nothing. Plug in - green light off again.
      Later: after some googling found that need to try to remove video cards. Done that. OK Nice! Plug in power and it starts as nothing happened on the integrated intel video.
      Found out that i one of the video cards is plugged in that triggers the power brick to trip. (the original upgrade 780m from years ago). 
      Start with GPU: Insert the other one in its slot. Systems start. But immediately i notice there`s no video drivers. OK i think reinstalling and job done. Drivers reinstalled, asked for restart. After restart nothing. Still no driver.
      Windows device manager: This is bogging me. it shows that i have 670M instead of 780m. Windows gives Code 43 Error.
      BIOS: I go into bios just to find that that it has reverted back to A05 (hows that possible?). And its so limited that i cant even choose witch video card to use. But it detects nVidia GFX.
      How to get at least my single 780M to be working?! Update bios again to unlocked? Did this event fry Vbios on my other card maybe?
      System: m18x R1
      SLI gtx 780m
      Unlocked bios (before event)
      nvidia driver 443.x(or there about)
      Win: 7, 64bit

      Hello there!
      I am new on the forum. I'd need some help. I own a lenovo ideacentre t540-icb g, and i would need to unlock all the options in my bios, especially overclocking and thermal configuration. I tried with both amibcp and mmtool, but i didn't succeed (Error 18).
      I wonder if you could help me or give me some advice.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
       
      I need help in fixing my Thinkpad.

      I just got a T440p yesterday. It was working perfectly until the following:

      I reinstalled Windows and then I installed Vantage.

      I installed all the latest drivers.
      I also choose to install the bios update. The bios update ran in Windows and it asked me to restart. After restarting, the screen was blank. I tried powering it off and on and I saw the Thinkpad logo but after that the screen was blank.

      I tried powering on and off again and there's no Thinkpad logo now and the screen is just blank with the green power on. No sound, no nothing.


      Here's what I tried:
      Pressing the power button 10 times and then holding it for 30 seconds. Unplugged and battery is detachted Detached the CMOS battery and the reattached it Removed the ram, harddisk and optical disk drive. Attached the battery and inserted the charger. I turned it on and there was a couple of beeps Tried pressing FN+R and created a bootable USB I'd like to ask: How do I fix this? What do I need to do?
      Can I reflash the bios in some other way? Do I need to buy a new motherboard? Will this solve the issue? It's my first thinkpad and I'm really excited but I was bummed out that this happened. Can you please help me?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?
